Axamer Lizum Ski Resort Austria

Axamer Lizum is one of the nine Innsbruck Olympia Ski World resorts. Aside from being a great resort for intermediate skiers & snowboarders, Axamer Lizum is worth a visit to ride the world's craziest funicular, the Olympiabahn. We found that mid-week powder days at Axamer Lizum are all but deserted & a helluva lot of fun.

Only a short drive from Innsbruck, Axamer provides wonderful dining & expansive views from its summit of Hoadl (2,340m) plus access to freeride routes off its backside.

Axamer Lizum Skiing & Snowboarding

A small to medium sized resort with 30km of piste trails, Axamer Lizum makes for a wonderful day lapping super-fast, top to bottom groomers over its 760m vertical. Advanced riders will enjoy the off piste off the summits of Hoadl & Pleisen, whilst beginners can do long top to bottom cruising from Hoadl. The backcountry route down to Axams off Pleisen is a cracker if there is snow all the way into the valley.

The resort's terrain is well served by chairlifts, but they are starting to show their age. Not much in the way of high speed here. The Olympiabahn funicular is fun to ride once, but our view is that funiculars don't make great ski lifts. Thankfully there are chairlift alternatives to the summit of Hoadl.

Snow & Weather

It is no secret that many of the lower base elevation ski resort bases around Innsbruck suffer a little these days from the vagaries of the changing climate -POW (Protect Our Winters). However, Axamer Lizum (along with Kuhtai, Schlick2000 & Stubai Glacier) is NOT one of them. With the highest base in the area (1,580m), Axamer is usually guaranteed a deep base throughout the season across its entire vertical. When the snow does fall, the predominantly north to northeast aspect terrain retains its quality.

Where is Axamer Lizum, Austria?

The Axamer Lizum ski resort is in the Tyrol, a 20km (50min) drive from the centre of the world's greatest ski city, Innsbruck. Regular ski buses travel from Innsbruck (routes L1, L2 or 4162) via the nearest towns of Axams & Goetzens. Private taxis & shuttles provide an alternative.

Axamer Lizum Accommodation

There are numerous accommodation options when skiing Axamer Lizum. The resort base has several ski-in ski-out hotels including the superb Lizum 1600 & low-brow Hotel Olympia.

The villages of Axams is only 8km by road north of the resort & comprises a wide range of lodging alternatives to the ski resort. Götzens village, a little further down the road, also has a few great value accommodation options including the Gasthof Goetznerhof. The local ski bus stop is right out the front.

Failing that, staying in one of the Innsbruck hotels or chalets is great fun & allows flexibility to ski all over the valley.
